While John and I were in Hawaii a few months ago we heard this great Aloha Friday song. We had to stop what we were doing and just listen to the music. It was so much fun and made us smile. We started talking about what we love to do in Hawaii and the relaxed feeling we get while we are in Hawaii. We wanted to find a way to bring the island life, relaxation and fun back home with us to Spokane. We decided to celebrate 5 O’clock Aloha Friday each week! We will be sharing tropical drink recipes, island memories and so much more each week.
This week we are kicking it off with my personal favorite the Pina Colada! We visit a tiki bar called Don the Beachcombers on the Big Island every time we are there. They have fantastic happy hour specials that just happen to coincide with watching the sun set over the ocean. There is nothing quite like sitting back with a Pina Colada in hand watching the sun set, dolphins swim in the ocean, and spending time with your Husband.
I hope everyone enjoys 5 O’Clock Aloha Friday and you are able to relax and have a great Friday night!
